Big Fan of Ho Fan’s Photography

Off the Top of My Head

By Paul Murray

a4f8e5cc8b56bd62debe7df3efbb9bf2Teenage photographer, Ho Fan arrived in Hong Kong from Shanghai in 1949. He turned his shape eye and lens to the bustling streets of the then English-administered Chinese city to capture the street vendors, the architecture, the morning and evening sunlight playing off the people; the coolies, the rickshaw driver, the fishermen and builders going about their daily lives.

Fan was a pioneer of candid street photography and devoted his life to film and capturing human history in his images.
